i'm anne-marie green. the second american infected with the deadly ebola virus is now in the hands of u.s. doctors. nancy writebol checked into emory university hospital in atlanta yesterday. she's being treated alongside her colleague. writebol flew in from west africa where the disease has killed nearly 900 people and as ko im reports, there are new efforts by airports to try to stop the spread. >> reporter: american missionary nancy writebol is undergoing treatment for ebola in an isolated ward at atlanta's emory university hospital. the president of the aid group she worked in in liberia read a statement from writebol's husband who said she is weak but showing signs of improvement. >> a week ago, he said, we were thinking about possible funeral arrangements. yet we kept our faith. >> writebol and her colleague kent brantly contracted the
often deadly virus in liberia. they used a never before used on human serum. it's killed 9 hurricane of more than 1,600 people infected in africa. now airports like this one in nigeria are screening anyone that may have been exposed. >> if we have any suspicious passenger, they go to this holding area where we provide for further investigation. >> reporter: this woman passed through three checkpoints. >> they showed a light all on your body. if you're free, they allow you to get on. >> reporter: the ebola virus is spread through direct contact with bodily fluids. doctors in new york are still awaiting test results to decide whether a money who traveled to the region and complained of symptoms may have the virus. ebola is one of the many topics president obama is discussing
with african leaders in a special three-day summit in washington this week. anne-marie? >> ko im in new york. thank you, ko. hurricane iselle could make landfall tomorrow. it continues to weaken but it's still moving toward southeastern hawaii. the storm's expected to bring heavy rain, high surf, and strong winds and right behind s iselle is julio. some are offering extended hours for shoppers but the shelves aren't filled for long. island residents are trying to stock up on necessities like bottled water, dry food, and toilet paper, while some are fueling up their cars and gas tanks for their generators. >> with two coming right one after the other, i mean it makes sense to be pr >> reporter: the big island of hawaii is expected to take the hardest hit from iselle and
julio. and passengers are safe this morning after a fire in the middle of a united airlines flight force and emergency landing. the boeing 777 left the airport yesterday with 233 people onboard. it was headed to brussels, but when the fire broke out, the pilot touched down at an airport in halifax, nova scotia. firefighters met the plane on the ground. the fire was put out before the emergency landing and no one was hurt. and a woman landed herself in jail after allegedly by passing airport security and flying to los angeles without a ticket. 62-year-old marilyn hartman boarded a southwest airlines flight at san jose's manetta airport monday. they didn't notice the extra passenger until the plane landed. they say she's tried the same thing at least six times in san francisco but she was always caught. the nation is mourning the loss of a two-star general this morning killed in an apparent insider attack in afghanistan.
major general harold greene was stationed in kabul since january. he was a 34-year veteran of the u.s. army. greene was the lone fatality at a shooting at a training ground for afghan soldiers. nearly 15 others were hurt. david martin reports. >> reporter: it happened at midday at the military academy where afghans are trained to become officers. a delegation of u.s. and allied officers was mowed down by a man believed to be an afghan army soldier who opened fire with a machine gun from the window of a nearby building. before troops assigned to guard the visitors could return fire, an american general had been killed at eight u.s. soldiers wounded, four of them seriously. a german and an afghan general also were wounded. major general harold greene was deputy chief of training and assistance command which is at the heart of american strategy to pull its combat troops out of afghanistan by the end of this year. as a two-star general he's the highest ranking american officer killed since 9/11.
when one of the hi jacked airlines smashed into the pent gone killing among others three-star general timothy maude. so far insider attacks with soilediers dressed in afghan uniforms it was at its worst in 2012 when there were 48 attacks. that number was cut to 15 last year and three so far this year in part because of better vetting of afghan soldiers and in part because the u.s. designated guardian angels to be on the lookout for just such attacks. the shooter's motive is just not known, whether it was a personal grooerchs or an attempt to sabotage the training and afghan forces. either way it was said it would have no effect on u.s. strategy. >> i don't see any impact to the current plans to draw down our forces in afghanistan. >> it appears the shooter fired
indiscriminately into the crowd and did not deliberately try to kill an american general. david martin, cbs news, the p pentagon. a cease-fire between israel and hamas remains in place. without rockets flying overhead people in gaza are starting to return to their normal retunes. clarissa ward is in gaza where many are just assessing the damage. >> reporter: for the first times in months the streets of gaza were bustling but after weeks of bombardment, the full extent of the damage just beginning to sink in. many people who now can finally come home are realizing that they simply don't have a home to come to. there are entire neighborhoods like this one which have been completely destroyed. families picked through the debris, salvaged what little they could. in one of the hardest hit areas,
we met a man who showed us what was left of his house. >> my children, small children, they cried. where my room, daddy. you want to levive with peace? not like this. peace not like this. >> the israelis say there were many hamas rocket launchers here. >> not here. we don't have hamas here. all the building here is civilian people. >> reporter: but a map released by the israeli military claimed to show multiple tunnels built by hamas leading into israel and at the mosque next door, we found what appeared to be archways for tunnels. we were not allowed to enter. israel is claiming vick interest in its operation destroying about 32 tunnels in hamas. hamas say it was a 100% failure. that rhetoric holds little interest for most people here.
they're simply grateful for the calm. people here feel that this cease-fire is more likely to last than previous ones because israeli forces have now pulled out of gaza, but, of course, the next couple of days will be crucial. clarissa ward, cbs news, gaza. well, coming up on the "morning news," times square crash. more than a dozen people are hurt when tour buses collide on packed streets. this is the "cbs morning news." livin' in a sweet dream. singin' my favorite song and it all starts with you. whoa-oh-oh-oh, all this goodness... what matters most should always come first. which is why whole grain is the first ingredient in every general mills big g cereal. and why we never use high fructose corn syrup. general mills. look for the big g. it means goodness first. ♪
